Visit:  Mogden Sewage Treatment Works

Thursday 27 October 2016  

Thames Water has kindly invited IDGTE members and their guests to visit the Mogden Sewage Treatment Works to view the Mirrlees KP Major dual fuel engines in their last period of operation before retirement.

The treatment works was originally developed in 1931 covering 55 hectares and is the second largest in the UK, serving around 2 million people. There have been various updates in the plant over the past 85 years and there is a £31million investment in hand at present, which includes the installation of a CHP scheme with new engines.

Please contact IDGTE if you wish to attend this visit.

Call for technical papers:  IDGTE Papers Day 18 October 2016

An opportunity to present a paper at an IDGTE event and get your paper published

The events we held during 2015 have been most successful and IDGTE appreciates the really good response to previous calls for papers.

IDGTE is now planning for a Technical Papers Day to be held on Tuesday 18 October 2016. This will focus principally on reciprocating engine technology and associated fields.  We need offers of technical papers for this.

If you have interesting experiences or ideas in this area why not send us a short abstract for consideration of 100-150 words.   All papers will be peer reviewed before presentation or publication in the Power Engineer.  These should be sent to the “Papers Co-ordinator” at papers@idgte.org
